The bandage applicator is a 4.5cm diameter chrome wire frame applicator for applying Tubigrip tubular bandage size D (large arms, medium ankles and small knees) or Tubegauz tubular bandage size 56 (adult fingers). The bandage applicator works by sliding the entire measured tubular bandage onto the outside of the applicator and slip it over the limb. Pull off one end of the bandage at the start point and slide the applicator over the limb while releasing the bandage slowly. Get to the far side and double back on yourself to finish where you started. The applicator can be slid off, leaving the bandage on the limb while covering a dressing or compressing a swollen or painful joint without increased pain.
